Washington (Oct. 8, 2003) -- The Internal Revenue Service is urging tax professionals to be aware of changes that will affect where they send tax returns and payments for clients in 10 states starting in 2004. The changes are a result of redistributing workload among the 10 IRS processing centers to provide better service.

Tax professionals whose clients are in the Metro New York area and Alabama, Arkansas, Delaware, Michigan, Montana, Rhode Island, Tennessee, Utah and Wyoming will be filing their returns with different IRS centers during the 2004 filing season.

Preparers with clients in Arizona and Washington will send returns with payments to different IRS addresses although other returns will continue to go to the IRS center in Fresno.

For taxpayers who file paper returns, the new center addresses will be provided on the envelopes in the tax packages. Taxpayers who e-file will not be affected by these changes.
